The local media over the past few days have reported on the discovery of body parts near a river in a local village. I initially considered whether it might be someone known to our team  but imagine my shock today to discover it is someone I have known for 13 years. We lived next door to his parents and regularly socialised with the chap. We lost contact as he slid into drugs and petty crime and caught sight of him last year when he moved in nearby. Not a bad lad but addiction to hard drugs eventually led to many doors being closed to him. His death and the discovery of dismembered body parts is truly horrible.There have been arrests but locally people are pointing at drug dealers and users. An awful and sad end to a young life and puts our general day to day worries into perspective. I had intended to post on another topic but this news just blew me away. Another lost soul...

It's always sobering when reality hits home, or close to it. Give the parents your best.

How awful. There is absolutely nothing recreational about drugs, is there?
